The Chronicles of Mark Johnson
Did it really happen? Did he write the award-winning book - The Chronicles of Mark Johnson?
People kept telling him that once were win an award, you are always an award winner, but he had trouble believing that the last few years; especially as his book sales were not coming anymore.
The book was going to be the start of a new series, but after the award it never sold as he became the victim of jealous writer who he had once known.
He pondered on how people's perceptions of him changed with the news, those who bragged about going on courses at Universities and selling books suddenly became silent, and cut him off. He hadn't changed, but they viewed him in a different light.
Sitting at his desk he thought "That was a different life several years ago in another time." A time when he believed in his ability as a writer.
